TITLE:

Fantastic fibonacci

STARTING POINT:

Where is math in nature? Where is art in maths? Everywhere we look in the world and in the universe we see Fibonacci sequences and spirals as a sign of our interdependence, the cycles of life and the beauty in the every day. At this festival we will take the Fibonacci patterns of the Eden Project as a starting point. A place that positioned the beauty of the mathematical at the heart of its building and artwork, to then explore how we can bring Fibonacci patterns into theatre of our own devising.

OUT AND ABOUT:

There is no specific out and about at this festival as the entire event takes place at the Eden Project.
